It’s consistent across the genre — from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles to Twilight to True Blood, the undead are blessed with unexplained, limitless wealth despite their inability to hold a day job (for various reasons). The vampires in What We Do in the Shadows are a bit more down to earth, despite their flying abilities — they struggle to pay rent, bicker over chores, and get barred from nightclubs. Co-writers/directors/stars Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, the creative minds behind Flight of the Conchords, will appear for a Q&A after tonight’s premiere screenings. Give them a round of applause, but not your blood.
